In scoring the fourth goal in Manchester United`s 4-0 win over a beleaguered Crystal Palace, Romelu Lukaku secured a place in the Manchester United history books.

Lukaku has now, in his first 7 Premier League games for Manchester United, netted 7 goals, a feat that only Andrew Cole had done previously.

The listing relating to the feat is as follows:

? Romelu Lukaku (2017) – 7 goals
? Andre Cole (1995) – 7 goals
? Louis Saha (2004) – 6 goals
? Dwight Yorke (1998) – 5 goals
? Robin Van Persie (2012) – 5 goals

Talking about the striker, signed in the summer from Everton, Jose Mourinho has had this to say,

“It doesn`t matter if he scores or not.

“Of course, it is nice for a striker to score, it I snice to equal the record of such a legend in the Premier League like Andy.

“But Lukaku is not just about the goals he scores. He is about the way he plays.”


I think it is safe to say Romelu has settled in remarkably well at Old Trafford since hi summer move.
